I'd have to differ o boviniphile. McJagoff had great pipes in the late 60s-70s. The great period--Let it Bleed through Goat's Head Soup--is sublime. Listen to "Moonlight Mile" from Sticky Fingers--one of the best vocals I've ever heard.
However, they could have laid it down a long time ago. His voice and the band's playing have slowly but surely declined in the past 20-30 years. Now it's embarassing.

Grace Slick was right when she said that rockers who stayed at the party past 60 were simply embarassing.

BTW.--Caught the Stones at MSG on that 69 tour--magnificent.

Grace Slick obviously never saw Ronnie James Dio. That guy's 67, and can still blow away any singer out there.

Rob Halford is nearly 60, and is willing to blow any singer out there.

Of course there are exceptions to the rule. But I don't think I'd want to see Grace shake that thang.

I'm sure that I'll take plenty o crap for this (I'd feel disappointed if I didn't), but the Dead should have hung it up some time ago. Dylan, too.

Still, I'm glad that they haven't.

i dont know... Dio LOOKS pretty embarrassing on stage at this point in his career (or for the past 10 years) - lol.



(agreed his pipes still work though)

holy crap!! a ghost sighting :)

how are ya Bill? Hope things are well!!

I am just not a Stones fan at all and never liked Jagger's vocals. although i do appreciate a song or two of their ouevre - just not many. my choice of wording was more hyperbolic than any true feelings about the man's existence :)

Just wondering, how important do you have to be to be assassinated rather than just plain murdered?

Moscone and Milk's deaths were always referred to as murders, although they were actually assassinations...
